I'm not sure how many I had...they said "a couple"...took less than a week before I stopped noticing them. I'm not sure when they actually dissolved.

I got 4. It was a type of 8 figure stitch. They're supposed to dissolve in 6 weeks. I had a pretty good scrape in the cavity right at the edge from her nails. I had sex a week after birth though so. Either way I never had problems with them.

I had a few each time I gave birth within a week I didn't notice them.

I had more then 3 with both my girls, it took a few weeks to heal, probably between 2-3 week, but I felt a ton better and was pretty muc pain free by day 3.

Two or three weeks I think. I only got stitches with my first, so I don't properly remember. It was only super painful the first couple of days.

I had over 40 stitches and it took me 12 weeks to heal and 11 months for sex to stop hurting without the aid of numbing jelly.

I don't know how many I had. I got stitches for 2 of my deliveries and I remember noticing them for a week or so. Doing the sitz bath helped me a lot.
